Rescue of Rabbi Nachman’s Gravesite in Uman – Part 1 of 5

In 1979 the Soviets planned to destroy Rabbi Nachman’s grave in Uman to make way for a housing project. Rabbi Michel Dorfman ז”ל and the leaders of the international Breslov community appointed Rabbi Nasan Maimon as spokesman to avert this threat. Together, Reb Michel and Rav Nasan received encouragement from HaRav Moshe Feinstein זצ”ל and other gedolei Torah.

The Satmar Rebbe, Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rav Moshe Sherer, Rav Pinchas Teitz, and Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan all supported and contributed their wisdom and guidance to the mission. With their help, Rabbi Maimon was able to present the Jewish community’s petition to officials from the U.S. State Department and the Kremlin.

B”H the petition succeeded and the gravesite of Rebbe Nachman was preserved. This miracle also protected the nearby mass grave of some 30,000 Jewish martyrs of the Chmielnitsky massacres. As a direct result of these efforts blessed with success by Hashem, hundreds of thousands have been able to visit this holy site since that time. In 2011, Rabbi Nasan Maimon presented a five-part lecture series to document these events.
